David Ngwoke Mbazor, Sunday Okuoma Okoh


Multicultural workforce dominates emerging construction Organisation in today’s global business environment and consists of teams from different nationalities with diverse cultural orientations and values. The study examined how issues such as changing age, sex, religion, ethnicity, physical ability, race, sexual orientation of employees affect health, safety and environment. Issues such as language or communication barrier, cultural challenges, religious differences, practice/technological issues are some of the challenges that project and construction managers must embrace and address squarely. It was therefore recommended that construction Organisations must have a unit charged with cultural orientation, language training and better utilisation of government policies regarding migration of workforce.
